You’re getting older, and you’ll see that life isn’t like your fairy tales. The world is a cruel place. And you’ll learn that, even if it hurts.
When I was growing up, they would say you could become cops or criminals. But what I’m saying is this. When you’re facing a loaded gun, what’s the difference?
Go on! Go back and grow up. But I’m warning you, once you’re grown up, you can never come back. Never!
You just have to decide what kind of man you want to grow up to be. Because whoever that man is, good character or bad, he’s gonna change the world.[to Clark]
If you went back home, it would be the end of all our fun. All our adventures. All you’d have left is growing up.
I think that to grow up… Why, it might just be the biggest adventure of all. Just think of all the things that could be right around the corner that you’re missing out on. Think of what the world is missing out on with you not being there to do them.[to Peter]
